not that funny and pales in comparison to Animal House
18 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

It's June 1972. Snooty Bob Spinnaker (Gerrit Graham) and the rest of the class prank Walter Baylor with his twin sister which ultimately sends him to a mental hospital. Ten years later, the class of Lizzie Borden High reunites. Gary Nash is the class nobody. Bunny Packard is the prudish bossy girl. Hubert Downs is disgusting. Iris Augen is the blind girl who has trouble hearing. Meredith Modess is the class stuck up beauty. Delores Salk is a cripple who is walking again with the devil's help. Jaws is the exchange student from Transylvania High. Chip Hendrix and Carl Clapton are the pot-smoking burnouts. Chuck Berry plays at the reunion. People start getting killed off one by one. Dr. Robert Young (Michael Lerner) arrives to tell them that Walter Baylor has escaped. They are locked in and have to search for an escape route.

John Hughes writes a low level broad spoof of a horror movie. Basically he's written some outlandish characters and let them go. It has the same National Lampoon sense of humor but it doesn't have the same comic talents in the cast as Animal House. Stephen Furst is there for both and Gerrit Graham is pretty good. However if Gary Nash is suppose to be the protagonist, Fred McCarren is too much of a nobody to play the nobody role. This has limited humor, done in a flat way and underpowered by the performances.
